Melbourne Water is working with stakeholders, community representatives and residents to reimagine a number of creeks across Melbourne.

By working together we can create natural waterways and desirable, open spaces where people can interact with nature in cooler, healthier environments.

This approach means that the people who are most likely to use the open space can influence the re-design so that it meets their needs and preferences.

Reimagining Arnolds Creek 

The first site to be reimagined is a 1.4km section of Arnolds Creek in Melton West.

We expect construction to start in early 2019.

Co-design process

We want to highlight the co-design process undertaken in collaboration with our project partners Melton City Council, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Western Water,  the Community Advisory Group and the wider community.  This collaborative process has resulted in a design that is informed by local knowledge, community values and priorities.

We have have been working with local community to prepare designs for Blind Creek in Boronia and Tarralla Creek in Croydon.
